Unfinished Business in Wuqi

Broken remains of a home in the back alleys of Wuqi.

I found this half-demolished building while slinking through the back alleys of last February. I wonder what possessed anyone to only knock down part of the structure, leaving the rest exposed to the elements for some interminable period of time. You’d think the neighbours would complain about a gutted ruin on their doorstop—but in another sense it is oddly picturesque. Then again maybe someone still occupies the front part of the house, this being and all.
